Turkey Cheese Snack Directions

  1. Remove the wax covering from the cheese. If you want to make a shape on the face, leave some wax and use a knife to cut your design.
  2. Slice a portion off of the bottom of the cheese so your turkey will stand upright.
  3. Cut cheddar cheese into triangles for beaks and stick them to the Babybel cheese. They should stay without any edible glue such as cream cheese.
  4. Add some almonds for feathers and cloves or mustard seed for eyes.

Keep refrigerated until you serve them. The cheese will get hard if you leave it out too long. Make up to 2 hours ahead of time if you serve at Thanksgiving dinner.

These treats are super easy and perfect for kid’s lunches too!
